Manchester United Could Face Possible Points Deduction In Regard To Sunday’s Protests

  • Thousands of Manchester United supporters gathered outside Old Trafford holding huge placards and posters protesting against the owners of the club, the Glazer family.
  • The Glazer family played an important role in the failed European Superleague.

Manchester United risk points deduction following Sunday’s chaotic protests that led to the unwarranted postponement of the clash between the two arch-rivals Manchester United and Liverpool.

The Football Association (FA) are currently doing exclusive investigations on Sunday’s occurrence and if in any case the club lands guilty then Manchester United could face points deduction.

Over 10000 Anti-Glazer protesters broke into the stadium early enough before the kick off of the clash between the two clubs, some even barricaded the players inside the hotel where they were doing their last preparations before the official kick off time.

The Red Devils are now waiting anxiously to know their fate with two possible ‘punishments’ by the FA, either a monetary penalty or possible points deduction may be placed on the club.

Despite breaking into the club and blocking the players from accessing the stadium, some even went ahead to launch a fight with the police who were on a mission to stop the protest.

Video footages showed how the protesters dealt brutally on one of the police officers with some even launching barriers.
